NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Justin Tucker hit five field goals and the Baltimore Ravens wrapped up a perfect preseason with a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night.

Baltimore (4-0) found the end zone only once on Tyrod Taylor's 8-yard pass to Deonte Thompson, but that was enough against the Saints (3-1), who struggled to score while quarterback Drew Brees got the night off.

Brees' backup, Luke McCown, completed all four of his passes, including a short touchdown toss to Travaris Cadet on his only series. But New Orleans managed only two more field goals by Derek Dinke after Ryan Griffin relieved McCown in the first quarter.

Both clubs gave many starters the night off. Taylor started for the Ravens, completing 10 of 17 passes for 105 yards, a TD and an interception.
